Lyrics

Well she just couldn't stand the scandal It was more than she could handle But I thank her for leavin' me so warm On a doorstep in a basket Which was better than a casket Before she blew town like a gentle storm And when she left, she left me no name Folks here tagged me Sho-name And bein' born was my first big bad break I wish now that I'd been put down In a better part of this town When she got rid of a Birmingham mistake 'Cause I'm livin' with the burden Of livin' down the Birmingham mistake The longer that I live makes me wonder Just how long it's gonna take When will I have a change o' luck When will things start lookin' up And livin' down this Birmingham mistake Life ain't been a bed of roses People still look down their noses I was born without the icin' on cake It wasn't me who did the choosin' But it's me who's doin' the losin' Well I was born a Birmingham mistake Now I'm livin' with the burden Of livin' down the Birmingham mistake The longer that I live makes me wonder Just how long it's gonna take When will I have a change o' luck When will things start lookin' up And livin' down this Birmingham mistake
